Hey, everybody…My name is Layla. I just moved in from my former residence in Ash, NC. I needed a few days to adjust, but already I am feeling quite comfy at SOAR as you can see here. I only have to get accustomed to being led about on a leash for the first time, and then I’ll be “good to go.” I am spayed and fully vetted, and I am microchipped. I have lived with cats and other dogs, so no issues there. Whoops – gotta go – leash training is about to begin. See you later.

Addison here. Please call me “Addy.” My new friends at SOAR think I could be part Treeing Walker Hound and maybe part American Bulldog or American Staffordshire Terrier. My picture may not suggest it but I really am happy to have been surrendered to SOAR, putting a rather unstable home situation behind me. I’m still a little off kilter over it all so I’ll need a little time to get my paws back on the ground. So far, I’ve had some nice long walks and some excellent ball chasing sessions in the exercise yard. Come on out for a visit.

Hello, everyone. I hope my name isn’t too obvious, but that’s not so important anyway. I just got here by way of Animal Protective Services. I am neutered, Heartworm negative, and up to date on my shots. It looks like you now have two happy-go-lucky wire haired terrier types to choose from here in me and Allie–but that’s okay, I don’t mind the competition. See you soon.

Hello, everyone. My name is Sadie. Like Baylee, who moved out just as I was moving in, I am a female Beagle/Hound mix. I am 6 years old and just a little on the reserved side. I had to leave my old home after my human mom passed away, but not to worry, I am handling the change pretty well. I like kids and other dogs, and I’m really into running and playing fetch with any kind of ball — just ask Allie or Lyla, or some of the volunteers –they’ll tell you, once they’ve been able to catch their breath. I think I would be most happy getting lots of exercise while living with someone who is home with me most of the time. Please stop by for a visit. You’ll find me right next door to Kita.

Kita? As in A-kita? Maybe even a dash of Corgi or a spot of Aussie? Whichever, a 4-year old boy am I with striking good looks and a sunny disposition to match, right Max? Max…Hey Max…Oh Max. Oh yeah, that’s right…Max, my old neighbor, got adopted a while ago. Well I sure hope some of that good fortune rubs off on me. Come on out and give me some belly rubs, or take me out for a spin–just hold on tight when we go past the cats!

Hey there. I am Lyla, a female boxer mix, just over 3 years old. I am very athletic and don’t mind going to a home with humans who like to be active. A home with another friendly dog like me to run and play with would be right up my alley too, but when it’s time to take it down a notch, just say so. I will be all yours for a leisurely stroll (have you seen me in 2014′s Oak Island Mardi Gras By The Sea and Christmas By The Sea parades?). I am very smart too – I can sit, shake and give kisses (Be sure to see my video on our Facebook page – 12/15/14). All these qualities and sweet to boot, yet nobody seems to want to take me home with them. I just don’t get it.

What’s Up?? I am Baby and I came to SOAR from Pender County Animal Services when they needed to displace all of us while they were having to renovate their shelter. I am a female Lab mix, spayed and up to date on my shots. About 6 years old, I have now spent four of those years here at SOAR. Why? I can’t imagine it’s because I’m a silly girl, and because I love to run around with my squeaky toys and with the other dogs here, though I’m generally quite docile. Stop by for a visit. Take me for a walk or a game of fetch in the exercise yard. See if you can figure it out.

Hello everyone. I am Gus to the right with my sister Libby, enjoying an outing at the beach. A pair of abandoned Walker Hounds, we were rescued by SOAR over five years ago. We’ve made lots of good friends at SOAR over the years, but it would sure be nice to catch a break and connect with somebody who’ll love us 24-7 for the rest of our healthy lives. We are both sweet, laid back, get along good with other dogs, and are good with cats. We would love to find a home together, though we are not insisting on that. Could your home be the one?

Hello. I am Dixie, an 8-9 year old female Lab/Pit mix, spayed and up to date on my shots. If I look familiar, it may be because you saw me on the back cover of PawPrints Magazine a couple of years back. I was Pet of the Month you see for 12 consecutive issues. Most recently, you might have spotted me strutting my stuff in the 2014 Oak Island Christmas By The Sea parade. A sweetie when I came to SOAR with my 3 babies in 2008, I am just as sweet today – as long as we are not talking cats, that is. Don’t miss my video on our Facebook page – 11/24/14 – catch me at one of my favorite things to do — running after the ball with my playmate Baby and flashing my soccer moves. Won’t you give me the break I’ve been very patiently awaiting? I won’t disappoint.

They call me “The Fonz.” I arrived here in August 2013 from Animal Protective Services, a cute 5-year old male Beagle mix who should be hard for anybody to overlook. Well, time marches on, and my address is the same. I love playing ball — I’m quite a sight when I get my little legs going in full sprint. C’mon somebody, make my day. Come take me home!

Hi! I am Allie, a 5-year old Wirehaired Terrier mix. My past life caused me some anxiety for sure, but SOAR came to my rescue and my days seem a lot sunnier now, as I am pretty much a happy-go-lucky girl, chasing balls, going on walks, getting belly rubs, and getting brushed. Yes, I am enjoying the company of the volunteers, but my earlier experiences have left me a little jumpy sometimes – most often around men that I am not familiar with. I like most of the dogs here–Baby Bear was my favorite, and now it looks like Benji and I will be picking up where she and I left off. Cats are definitely not my cup of tea. Please come out for a visit or two so we can really get acquainted. Then maybe we can go home???
